Budget safaris to Queen Elizabeth National Park – This primary game viewing tourist destination in Uganda – Queen Elizabeth Park can be as well be combined with Gorilla Trekking Expeditions, the top tourist attraction in Uganda. Queen Elizabeth National Park and the Bwindi impenetrable Forest National Park are located in south-western Uganda, which makes it easy to combine the two destinations.
Visiting Queen Elizabeth on budget adds a rewarding game viewing component to Uganda budget safaris that go for Mountain Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Gorilla Trekking in the rainforests of central Africa is considered one of the ultimate wildlife experiences in Africa. Taking a safari in Queen Elizabeth at the same time, opens up the diverse and scenic habitats of the National Park and gives you the opportunity to see a wide range of African wildlife and bird species complimenting the Mountain Gorilla trekking adventure.
Most of our budget safaris that include Queen Elizabeth National Park are Budget Lodge Safaris, as well as some Overland Camping Tours. All of these safaris, ranging from about one to three weeks, also go Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Another great stop to add to Gorilla trekking and Queen Elizabeth safaris is the Kibale Forest National Park, where you can go Chimpanzee trekking.
The standard offering for mid-range tours is a 4WD Land cruiser Jeep with pop-up roof for easy game viewing. All passengers will have a dedicated window seat. Your professional and courteous driver / guide will be at your disposal for questions or translations.
- Lion tracking
For visitors who yearn to get up close to wild African fauna, a research trip is a rewarding adventure. This new and unique lion experience allows you to actively participate in monitoring some of lions in the park, using locator devices and learn habituation calls, as well as monitoring weather, surroundings, and behaviour.
The results are added to researchers’ databases, contributing valuable information to the overall understanding of wildlife ecology and helping to conserve this wonderful ecosystem. This will as well give you a 95% chance to see the lions.
The number of people on each outing is limited in order to reduce stress on the animals and to increase the quality of the experience for visitors.
- Kyambura Gorge
An optional activity in Queen Elizabeth National Park is to visit the Kyambura Gorge. A hike through the gorge gives you the opportunity to see habituated Chimpanzees and other types of primates including red-tailed monkey, black-and-white colobus, baboons and velvet monkeys. Although the chance of spotting Chimpanzees is only 50%, the landscape is among the most impressive in Uganda and is absolutely worth it.
